The album is out today! :D

Just had my first spin and it's really, really good, as expected. One thing i'm missing a little bit is a more uptempo track with a nice country vibe or so, as everything is quite slow/calmed down. But overall another great release, and i hope this does well for her :D

The Joke is one of the most powerful songs I've heard in a long while. Incredible vocal performance from her. :o

^ glad you guys enjoy this, too!

I think it's my favorite album from hers to date. It's SO good!

"By The Way, I Forgive You" currently has 78 on Metacritic, plus it debuts at #5 on the Billboard Top200 with 43K units / 41k sales.
With that, it becomes only her second Top10 entry and highest peaking album ever, and it sold just as much as "The Firewatcher's Daughter" did three years ago :o

She's the random left-field nominee of this year. I should play this, I like some of her older stuff.

I'm so glad for these nominations and I'm so happy more people discover her now. I don't expect her to win in the big categories, but I really hope she wins her first Grammy ever in the smaller ones. She deserves it. And this album still is one of my most favorite ones this year.

I would love if she's also performing at the Grammys. Her live performances for "The Joke" were so impressive.
